Aka the horse box......a ridiculous contraption.
Cant see AL going west coast for the foreseeable future until there is transparency re future ownership.
I was on a BA 777-400 (?) Heathrow to JFK in March. I was seated in the very back row double seat on the left of the airplane. Just to my right there was a door with steps inside that every so often cabin crew would dissapear up. I presumed it was a rest area. No announcement was made
Yeah I was on a BA 777 about 3 weeks ago LHR to PHL and they had something similar, there was no announcement or anything, the crew were always there of needed!!
Must have been a -300er you were on, I've never heard of a 777-400, and BA defo don't have any!!
It is possible to get the A330/340 with a mobile crew rest area that can be loaded into the aft cargo!! I'm fairly sure Air France and Lufthansa have them....not sure about EI when flying to the west coast but it's certainly not just something from the movies!!
Probably is but Aerlingus defiantly didnt have it or want it, there was huge issues around crew rest on the west coast flights, spend a few minutes doing a google search and you should find something.
OP they are employees not slaves and your tone certainly gives the impression that you begrudge them a break. 8 of them didn't go on a break at the same time.
I have to agree with the poster that said that posters here on A&A seem to be more on the line of Daily Mail jorno types. It's starting to make it a pain to read this forum.
I would guess that the crew were having their break in the rear galley with the curtains drawn. Some passengers take this as an invitation to snoop.
Many times I've seen passengers pull back the curtains and just stare at the crew, which promptly shoo the passenger out of the galley. I would reckon that after a few passengers were shooed the announcement was made.
As I've said I've seen it happen loads of times.
Case closed Scooby..
Op, are you currently in employment? If so, would you work the guts of a twelve hour day without taking a break? "what gives!!!" I hardly think so.
No matter what job a person is employed in, hey are entitled to a break.
Stop being a troll.
A380 Singapore airlines has a section in the middle of the lower deck.
Door opens and theres a stairs down.
Must of been 10-12 of them go down there at one point!
Seemed a bit like a clown car.
